If you’ve been looking for (or grasping for) a distraction from the bizarre turn of events this spring that have lead to much of the state remaining behind the closed doors of our own homes for hours and even days on end, then look no further than your own computer or television. We’ve put together the ultimate list of movies filmed in North Carolina that are a must for movie lovers in the Tar Heel State. Consider this your quarantine movie bucket list and enjoy!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
